Facebook disabled my account after it was hacked – How I got it back in 10 days

On Dec the 20th 2023 Facebook disabled my account after it was hacked and linked to an Instagram account with forbidden content.
Now I can't recover it as I cannot log in. I see many users are having the same issue, so I think it's a matter of general interest and not only personal.
I also want to say that Facebook must have noticed an abnormal activity on my account as I received plenty of emails reporting attempts to change my password. They could have frozen the account and let me recover it after a security check.
We users rely on the company and store our life on the platform, and they just close our accounts without a warning or a possibility to get in contact with a representative.
I cannot download my data due to a technical error....

How to book a train ticket in China

official webpage to buy a train ticket in china

 

Until the end of November 2023 booking a train ticket in China wasn’t the easiest thing for foreigners.

We either had to buy the tickets on third party applications, or go to the train station to verify our identity and then use the official railway page 12306 APP or website.

Even after identification, however, I had some issues with 12306 as once or twice the system just didn’t recognize me anymore and I had to go back to the dedicated window to fix it…

But now, starting from 28 November, the railway department has launched an online identity verification service for foreign passports.

The great wall of Nanjing: best place to visit in town

Nanjing great wall

 

If you are visiting Nanjing you know that some of the most famous tourist landmarks are the city wall, the museums and the temples…. But there is one spot that I love and that is totally underrated: the great wall just outside Nanjing is the best place to visit if you want to experience both nature and architecture (I am not saying "history" as the wall is a recent construction).

My life in China

It's been one year since I moved to China.

I had the opportunity to leave my Country (Italy) to teach abroad and I choose to come to Nanjing.

The Covid years were really hard for me and my husband, Italy was one of the places with more restrictions and mandates, day to day life was hell.... so we needed a fresh start.

China was not considered the best place at the time, epidemic measures were still enforced and we had no idea what the future would have been, but considered how bad we were feeling in our own Country we just made a bet, and won!

After some months life in China got back to normality, we could travel around both inside and outside mainland, and now we are enjoying a pretty good life.

I will do my best to talk about my new life here!
